From The Motor City Horns' trip to Nashville, Tennessee at 12th & Porter this past August with David Shelby. This MCH line-up included Walter White, Keith Kaminski, and John Rutherford. I've known Dave Shelby since the late 80's/early 90's when he was at Notre Dame High School, Harper Woods, Michigan! Horn break around the 1:30 mark or so. Enjoy! #davidshelby #motorcityhorns #rustbeltcountry

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2014. Performing tonight for a private party at the MotorCity Casino Hotel with The Bob Mervak Trio featuring The Motor City Horns ( The Motor City Horns). This caps off a nice week of holiday celebrations and catching up with my friends. I think we even finish before midnight! Hit earlier in the week at Cliff Bell's with Scott Gwinnell and his jazz orchestra and Colton Weatherston and his septet. Actually, that was at the end of last week, but who's really keeping track of time until January 2!!!

The Motor City Horns were among the horn section backing up Aretha Franklin at the Fox Theatre last weekend. Keith Kaminski got a nice mention by Gary Graff on Music for his tenor solo in Respect.

The video to "Crawl Up On It" featuring Willie Barnette, a.k.a "Warlock." He is from an area with a long history of some of the baddest singers & musicians out there...
Rock Hill, South Carolina. He's been playing with Sunny Ledfurd for years and has been one of Sunny's great mentors and inspirations. He says, "It's all about liquor houses and fish fry's and it's gotta have that funk!" The Motor City Horns met Sunny in Charlotte, North Carolina while on tour with Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band. Check out the horns we laid down for this track that Sunny produced for the Warlock!
